The man accused of opening fire at a church in California is a Chinese immigrant who was allegedly motivated by hate for Taiwanese people.
The Daily Wire reports:
The 68-year-old man is accused of killing one and injuring five others before members of the Taiwanese congregation disarmed him and hog-tied him using extension cords.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement that they recovered two firearms at the scene and that the suspect was not believed to live in the area.
The suspect, who is being held on $1 million bail, has been charged with one count of murder and five counts of attempted murder.
The shooting comes as communist China is rapidly ramping up its military capabilities to challenge the United States for dominance in Asia.
Those wounded by gunshots included four Asian men, ages 66, 75, 82 and 92, and an 86-year-old Asian woman, the sheriff’s department said.
Law enforcement sources said that the 68-year-old man is a Las Vegas native with no clear connection to the church.
